All the written literature, whether the Albanian or the World one, is filled with folk lexicon and obsolete words, in order to put it in the service of its own style, or to keep alive that great linguistic wealth. A lot of dissertations by various researchers have been written on the rich lexicon full of archaisms and neologisms by writers who have played an important role in the great world literature, thus giving extraordinary importance to the selection of a particular and rare lexicon.This was undoubtedly considered and continues to be considered as part of its systematic values. Such linguistic works on the use of this particular lexicon can also be done on the works of our traditional or contemporary literature. In order to illustrate the thesis that our writers, each of them, including the most famous names in our entire history of literature, such as Ismail Kadare, have "dipped the bread" on that inexhaustible fountain of the nation and in those words that have been extracted (passivized) long time ago from the everyday colloquial discourse, I have analyzed only two writers, Jakov Xoxa and Murat Isaku whose works are enriched with many obsolete words or archaisms. It enriches the language, restores to it many forgotten words, or as Pjetër Bogdani used to say, obsolete and forgotten words, or adds new words to the language.
